OWEN SOUND — Easton Mikus is officially a member of the Owen Sound Attack.

The 17-year-old forward inked a contract with the Ontario Hockey League club on Monday. He was selected by the team with the 69th overall pick during the fourth round of the OHL draft in April.

“I want to thank my family, friends, teammates and coaches that have helped and supported me along the way," Mikus said in a prepared statement.

"I’m very excited to get on the ice and contribute to the team’s success. I am looking forward to playing for the great fans of Owen Sound.”

After not being picked by any of the 20 teams in the OHL in 2023, Mikus turned in a dazzling campaign with the Superior International Junior Hockey League's Thunder Bay North Stars last season.

He was third in team scoring with 60 points – 31 goals and 29 assists – in 47 games to earn the league's rookie of the year honours.

Mikus followed that up with 10 points in nine playoff games for the North Stars, who lost to the eventual Bill Salonen Cup champion Sioux Lookout Bombers in the semifinal round.

“Easton is a hard-working strong on his feet tenacious forward," Attack general manager Dale DeGray said in a prepared statement. "I’m looking forward to seeing Easton in an Attack jersey come September.”

Mikus will see a familiar face when he arrives at Owen Sound's training camp.

Fellow Thunder Bay product and recent Los Angeles Kings draft pick Carter George will be entering his second season as the team's starting netminder.

The Attack start their 2024-25 campaign on Sept. 27 when they pay a visit to the Guelph Storm.
